    lol nice, man! I do like torque, but I'm not building this thing for purely off-roading. (Anything off-road related in this will be so boring compared to the stuff I did in the Green Dragon) Also, those types of mods tend to take away from drive-abilty, so this will just be an all around build that's a lot of fun to drive around town, or the occasional light trail, and the random snowstorm. :)
    haha hopefully..:D

    Yeah.... I like them too, but that's one thing I may have to change as larger tire sizes for a 13" wheel are non-existent. :):eek: I do know BFG makes a 205/75r14..... but for now, the white wheels stay until there is more power under the hood or I get lucky at the junkyard and find some 4.10s to replace the current 3.73s. :cool:

    does turning tires to black wall out count? How bout added snug top rebel.
    Awesome Silas! Can't wait to see what you do to the tercel! It'll be plenty fun whatever you do.

    buahahaha :( Meh.... right now, my tires are more than 14" shorter, so at least it'll be an upgrade. lol Just looked and it's actually a 195/75r14 which would be even better for my weak little axles... :eek:

    What? You can't find a load range E mud terrain tire with a bead-lock rim in a 13"? You're not trying hard enough.

    The stock size for my car is a 155/80R13 so technically I stepped it up a size. haha

    If you can get some 15's on there it will open up a whole possibility of tire sizes ;)

    :rolleyes: lol Thinking aobut some 15" Konigs or something similar... but I think more sidewall with the 14s will be better. :notsure: We'll see. :)

    In other news, I'm dropping her off at MAACO tomorrow to get a paint job. :woot: I'm doing rust removal and some sanding right now.

    The question is, will I have power to turn them? lol If I can find a way to build this little tiny transmission and transfer case to withstand more power, in order to make the engine swap a reality this summer, I will go with the 27s. Or maybe even when I land some 4.10s at the junkyard. :D

    something like this...

    Can we assume this is way too conservative?
